Raident Technology Introduces a New Generation Hard Drive Testing and Wiping Lab

Raident Technology has just built a next generation lab to test and wipe hard drives that will be available for tracking 24/7 through Raident’s web based system.

Fremont, CA, April 29, 2009 --( Raident Technology, has introduced a new lab for testing and wiping hard drives faster without jeopardizing information security. The new lab has state of the art capabilities that can test and wipe up to 500 hard drives at any time while all the results are automatically collected and inputted into Raident's eAudit tracking system. Together, the new lab and eAudit allow more accurate results at faster transfer of data.

Raident's President and CEO stated that "the new system uses the latest technology, which allows us to provide maximum data security." The customized software records all hard drive specifications, such as manufacturer, serial number, density (in GB) and so on, as well as results of wiping and wipe-verification. The results will be uploaded to Raident's database, and customers can view the results 24/7 in "real-time*" via eAudit system.

Raident's ability to test and erase hard drives is "scalable, there is no limit to Raident's current testing and wiping capacity. The system can easily be duplicated to handle much larger volumes," stated Raident's General Manager, Kenneth Ha.

EPA Designates $600 Million in New Funding to Clean Up Sites

April 16 -- The U.S. EPA has unveiled $600 million in new funding through the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 for the cleanup of hazardous waste sites across the nation.

The funding will accelerate cleanup already under way at most sites and fund some new cleanup projects. It also will jumpstart local economies by creating jobs, according to the EPA.

The federal Superfund program has cleaned up hazardous waste sites since 1980, dealing with properties that pose unacceptable risks to human health and the environment.

The Superfund program is implementing new or expanded cleanup actions at 50 sites around the country with recovery act funds.
